Student resilience and wellbeing are fundamental for both academic and social development. Confident, happy, resilient students who are able to establish meaningful relationships, perform better academically.
Student wellbeing is best achieved when students feel safe and connected to an inclusive school community, one that develops not only academic growth, but social, emotional, physical and spiritual growth as well.
At St Bernadette’s we believe in nurturing professional relationships within the community, which are safe, respectful and supportive, and which help students to reach their full potential. Our school is focused on building individual and collective wellbeing through a climate of care and positivity.
We recognise that the wellbeing of our students is supported by:
- Positive relationships between students, families and staff
- Positive learning environments
- Student Engagement
- A prevention to intervention model for the whole school community
Our philosophy and approach to wellbeing can be found in our Building Relationships Policy 2020
